I told my son when he was 6
I told my son when he was 6 that if he started riding his bike without training wheels he could get a skateboard. Turns out he accomplished that 2 weeks later….and still doesn’t have a skateboard.
One thing I can say though is thank goodness for Razor Scooters. When my kids are peeling around on their bikes I cruise on the Razor….it takes up much less trunk space than a bike…..plus, I don’t have a bike any more.
